Winemaker Notes

#17 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

An opaque black-purple core leads to a deep ruby rim. Head-turning aromas of mulberry, black olive, licorice, and violets titillate the senses. On the palate, full-bodied but smooth as silk. Nary a rough edge to be found. Enjoy this hedonistic wine (and raise a glass to Papa!) from release through 2014.

Critical Acclaim

WS 98
Wine Spectator

This gorgeous Syrah has amazing complexity, depth and concentration, gushing with pure, rich wild berry, blackberry and boysenberry fruit that's simply delicious right now. Holds its tight focus and gains depth and nuance, with pepper, spice and savory flavors. Drink now through 2016. 307 cases made.

RP 94
The Wine Advocate

Bigger, richer, and fuller is the 2007 Syrah Papa's Block, a gorgeous, full-bodied effort displaying roasted coffee, blackberry, acacia flower, licorice, and dark raspberry characteristics. This full-bodied, dense, chewy, smooth-as-silk Syrah will provide superb drinking over the next 8-9 years.

View all wine
We are a small Sonoma County winery specializing in the production of old-vine, vineyard designated zinfandels and red Rhone varieties (syrah, grenache, mourvèdre, and petite sirah). While we like our wines to be bold, rich, and intensely flavored, each reflecting a sense of place, its origins in the vineyard, we also strive to create wines of balance, complexity, and perhaps most importantly, pleasure.
